Barbara goes to Sarah Alexander's chalet and finds her packing.  Barbara tells her that she has come to see her for herself, not for David.  She says David is trying to protect her and their marriage.  "Don't you care for him," asks Barbara.  "I love him," Sarah tells her.  She says she couldn't bring up a child that had David's features.  "Don't you love that child even a little," asks Barbara.  "You bitch!" says Sarah.  "You of all people should know I'm the lucky one of the two.  Isn't that a laugh," says Sarah. 
Barbara tells Sarah that yes, she is lucky, she has something that she didn't think she could have, David's child.  "And you have David," says Sarah.  Barbara asks Sarah to let her have the child, it is better than the alternative.  She tells Sarah that if she kept the child then she would have a hold on David, or she could destroy him now.

Sarah tells David that she can't hope that he will come back to her once the child is born, so she has to shut herself off from that now.  She tells him that he won't see the child, his name won't be on the birth certificate, and he will have no claim on either of them.  She stands up from the chair, and walks to the motel doors.  She looks back at David who is standing head bowed in reception, and she smiles smugly.

Barbara joins David in the sitting room.  David tells her that Sarah is going to have the baby.  "She said you convinced her.  Why didn't you tell me?" asks David.  Barbara says he would have asked her not to.  David asks her what she said to Sarah, and Barbara says she told Sarah that the child was a tie to him and if she destroyed it she could give up any hope of David. 
David tells Barbara that Sarah told him that he wouldn't see the child and it wouldn't bear his name.  Barbara says she has given her a weapon and she is already using it.  Barbara tells him that she wanted to give him his freedom and he can still have it.  "She'll probably take you back in five years anyway," says Barbara.  David says he isn't proud of any of this, his lack of self control in the first place and anything that has happened since.  "If you want me, in the unlikely event, I'll be in the office," says David, and goes to the door.  "David!" calls Barbara. 
David shuts the door and turns to face Barbara.  She puts her arms around his waist and hugs him.  They hold each other.  "The awful thing is I'm jealous of that child," says Barbara.  David puts his hand to her face and kisses her.
